June 6- (Tuesday)
I am drawn to digi images these days because they are easy to store, plus can be sized as needed to fit a car. Plus there are soooooo many from which to choose!
The first challenge was to create a card to accompany a gift. I told a friend about a bible that my hubby gave me for Christmas that I love! (The Bible AND the hubby!)  Recently found one on sale and picked it up to give to my friend, who was saving up for one. The sentiment ion the inside of the card, printed on my computer reads, "Rest in these truths. And remember, YOU are loved with an EVERLASTING love!"
The card was made with a free digi found here-

It was also entered into a challenge that encourages me to create cards that encourage and give hope. Love that!

Great image would work for a Valentines, birthday or even a Father’s Day card (Dads can be hot, too!) Find the free image here http://www.papercraftsmag.com/articles/May_June_2013_Sentiments Entering this card into a masculine challenge, and also one that requires the use of background paper (and is CAS- a true challenge for me!) I didn't think about the fact that I set this card on a frilly doily until after I posted it here. Kinda like the way the bit of flounce plays off against the masculine theme. So fun!

The next few challenges involve flowers and bugs. I have many, many stamps in my collection that will help me here! This easel shape card will fit nicely into three challenges.

AAA Cards is celebrating their third anniversary this week. So their challenge is to create a CAS birthday card. I used two images from a box of old cards that I found at a thrift store. Added a bit of paper, a strip of embossed vellum, a "punny" computer-generated sentiment and we are good to go! (The inside of the card reads "... that's reason to celebrate!")
